Cable Technician Goes Above And Beyond To Comfort Crying Blind Toddler

Jessica Nash Donnahoo’s 3-year-old son, Sailor was born with two rare brain defects and he is blind, she wrote on Facebook. “He is unable to communicate his needs, and today has been rough for him. He has been crying all morning.”

So when Spectrum cable technician named Robert came in to upgrade the family’s service, he could have just done his work and gone home, but he didn’t do that.

“When Robert walked in and started talking, Sailor ran to him and reached up. Robert didn’t seem bothered at all and, instead, held my son off and on for the whole 45 minutes he was in our home,” the mother wrote.

Dear Spectrum Internet,
Today your technician Robert came to our home to upgrade our internet and help us start up TV…

It was relieving to Donnahoo when she saw her child calm and cool. “He understood the need for help, saw an opportunity to help another human being and took it,” she said.

Donnahoo says, “I think the reason that this act of kindness has resonated with so many people is that we can all relate — as parents, grandparents or just anyone who has been overwhelmed. In a world of mass shootings, political scandals, and drugs, we all need to be reassured that humanity and kindness still exist. Rob and my post did just that.”

We all agree that a little kindness can make a huge impact on this world of ours.

Verse of the Day

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. — Romans 5:6-8 (NIV)
